For my teeny tiny ink paintings, I used some new, fine 'liner' paint brushes and thinned black acrylic paint. I had fun doing some long-stroke, sketchy style designs!! My base color is Polish Alcoholic's Skiing Snowman (press sample) (see the full swatch/review post for it here). I actually found these fairly easy to do, because it's all about the suggestion of a thing instead of it being like a perfect image of a snail on my nail, ya know? For inspiration I used ye olde helpful Google Image Search and looked at some cool examples from people that actually know how to do ink paintings. In the end, I looooved these :D
Now check out the other Japan-inspired designs for today below!
